Not my cup of tea at all,I find this sort of 'cultural' history dull, self absorbed and unenjoyable to read. however if you like your history gender based and with a very cultural leaning then you will enjoy this book. On the other hand if you prefer something more tangible there are more enjoyable and genuinely informative books available. I will be donating my copy to the university library!
